All employers who have five or more employees in Bloomington, Minnesota.
On June 6, 2022, the Bloomington City Council unanimously approved Ordinance No. 2022-31, the “Bloomington Earn sick and Safe Leave Ordinance,” into law and will require employers in the city to provide paid sick and safe leave to most workers.
What are the details?
Effective July 1, 2023, the ordinance will require employers with five or more employees to provide their Bloomington employees with one hour of paid sick and safe leave for every 30 hours worked, up to a maximum of 48 hours per year. Employees will be allowed to carry over unused sick and safe leave from one calendar year to the next, up to a maximum of 80 hours.
Below are some key points of what the leave will provide and change:
